AD graphite design prototype tour only 2446 x

3 posts in this topic

So I FINALLY got my new  (2nd hand) driver last Friday, it's a Mizuno mp-600 fast-track  8.5 degrees with a 44 inch A&D; graphite design prototype tour only 2446 x shaft.

All of a sudden I hit the ball straight, long and where I want it to go. Happy happy happy!

I'm now thinking weather I should get irons with x-100 shafts? The Dynamic gold s-300 feel a bit soggy now and they tend to go a bit on the high side too.

Any thoughts on this?

I love this game, most days.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/coachjimsc/round/938898 League night. Played well for the most part. Made a nice putt for par on 3 then missed a short putt for birdie on 4. Just trying to torque the left knee on every shot. Lag putting is improving.

      The Independent vote went very strong for Romney in '12, and he still lost.  Given that, and everything you cited, along with other information I've read, I believe the country is right around 47% each side with only about 6% truly variable.  So again, half and half is a fair representation.  The Libertarian candidate could skew that this election but that would be an anomaly.
    • My Swing (Hardspoon)
      Good practice session today.  I reviewed the grip thread one more time before I went out, and made that a point of emphasis before every shot. My focus was to continue to groove the in-to-out path I've been working on, but to start to really work on proper clubface angle.  My tendency right now (when I take the "correct" grip) is to leave the face open at impact, leading to straight pushes and push-fades. It's not easy, but I did have some success, starting with slow-motion swings and working up to (what felt like) 80-90%.  I focused on using the move that @iacas explained in Erie (hand rotation, not a "wrist-flip") to get the face squared up.  I was able to hit some nice push-draws and straight draws with both the irons and driver...not consistently, but it was encouraging. I also bought a tripod adapter for my iPhone so I can try some 240fps recordings of my swing this weekend.

      It matters. Please read the last paragraph of my original post (the one that explains why I'm tracking a bogus HI). I'm using an online Handicap tracker. My HI is not legitimate on a couple levels. I don't belong to a club and I play the vast majority of my rounds by myself. That's why I don't show a HI in my profile. It's only important that I play by the rules because I want an honest assessment of my progress. I may never play in a tournament, but if I do, I'd like to be bit more familiar with how these things are done. Just because I suck at golf doesn't mean I can try to learn the rules.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      I took a look at your my swing thread - looks like you've gotten some good advice there and made some solid improvements.  FWIW - I posted this thread here called "What is the Secret of the Golf Swing" . .and I said that, for me, it was realizing how not to aim at the ball.  This "realization" helped me fix a lot of the things I see in your swing.  I'd been told lots and lots of times - don't hit at the ball, swing through to the target . but it didn't make sense to me . .until one day it suddenly did.  Anyway - while I suffered from this misconception - I had a variety of bad shots.  On my good days I could hit it pretty good.  On my bad days anything could happen . .I could slice it, hit it fat, pull hook it, top it, skull it, etc.  Anyway - it's not as easy as just "don't hit at the ball" . .or, as I think of it.  .don't aim "the energy of your swing at the back of the ball".   Speaking just for myself, it took a lot of practice and lessons to get to where I could "suddenly have this realization".  But . .in the meantime - you are hitting it fat (or whatever) because you're making a lot of corrections for some fundamentals that are off.  And, for sure, fatigue would have a lot to do with it.  The more fatigued you are, the less likely you'll be to make this corrections successfully .  If you get lessons or sign up for evolvr or just keep posting in the myswing thread - you can get the (slow) way forward - it's by focusing on one thing and then the next and then the next and yada yada.  I couldn't say what your "next thing" to work on is, though.
